Solar Inverters

Solar Inverters are the brains of a solar energy system. They convert Direct Current (DC) electricity generated by your solar panels into Alternating Current (AC) used by the appliances in your home

What to look for in a solar inverter

PV input & AC output

This ‘size’ of an inverter refers to the peak AC power output of the inverter in kW. (eg 5.0 kW). All inverters also have a Max PV input rating (eg 6.6 kW) this will always be larger than the inverter size, and refers to the max peak power output of the solar panel array

String vs Microinverter

Solar Inverters can be broadly categorised into two types; a String inverter (as pictured) where one large inverter is located near your switchboard or Microinverters, where a small inverter is located on the back of each solar panel – each has their pros & cons

Consumption Monitoring

Consumption monitoring allows you to view your solar generation, your self consumption and how much energy has been fed back to the grid. Always ask what level of monitoring your inverter includes. 3rd party monitoring and analytics are also available.

Product Warranty

Most inverters include a standard 5 Year warranty with the option to extend the length of the warranty for an additional cost. The warranty may cover parts only, or any combination of parts, labour and transport. Check prior to purchase
